Deliverance of flowers

The old greenhouses became uneconomic many years ago when it became cheaper to deliver flowers to local florists rather than grow them locally. Brookside Florist get at least some of its plants from Country Greenhouse of Goshen.

I could not find their website. What do you think--Mennonite or Amish?

The man or the business? If he's driving the van he is likely not Amish. They hire folks to drive them around.

We were visiting the Goshen area a few years ago and ran into a Burger King for a sandwich. There was a large group of Amish folk dining there, and a 15-passenger van outside with a Mennonite in the driver's seat. :)
